    Default Number 1 Albums the year you graduated Highschool

    The year I graduated it was the Lion King soundtrack and I'm disappointed. Can you live with your album?

    Richard Linklater made a whole movie about the year I graduated from high school--DAZED AND CONFUSED. Just listen to that soundtrack.

    1976: Frampton Comes Alive. Works for me.

    it was '87 and Slippery when Wet by Bon Jovi, an album I don't much care for, but it is fitting for the time period's musical trends.

    Since I'm a big fan of McCartney, I checked and WINGS AT THE SPEED OF SOUND was the album they released that year and it was at the top of the charts for many weeks. Not my favourite Wings L.P.--that would be VENUS AND MARS--but it has "Silly Love Songs," Beware My Love" and "Warm and Beautiful"--all favourites. And the bass on "Silly Love Songs" is just amazing to my ears. That year, June 10th--very close to graduation day--they were performing at the Seattle Kingdome and I had the opportunity to go down with a busload of other students from my class. I really wanted to go, but I was scared to go down to the States on my own and I decided against it. One of the greatest regrets of my life.

    I'm 1994 too, whatyagonnado, Lion King/Elton John was special. Wasn't my lane but shoutout to The Sign from Ace of Base too, didn't own it but it was a monster CD almost 5 million units right up there with like Lion King.

    If I remember it was around this time late in the year where the price point of a Compact Disc started to tumble. When the Coconuts dropped all their CD's to $11.99, lemme tell you, the excitement was nearly palpable.
    Beefing up the old home security, huh?
    You bet yer ass.

    Now, that's a store chain that I haven't heard of in a while.

    I miss having chain music stores where you could go in and look at all the different cd's, maybe even have stations where people could listen to samples from some tracks before deciding to buy them. I bought a few cd's I wouldn't normally have bought on my own after hearing those samples (and which I didn't hear on radio stations, either).

    Mariah Carey's debut album.



    I'm tempted to hate, based on how big a fan I am (not) all these years later, but respect that absolutely nobody was hating on her voice, back then.

    Mariah Carey has put out some . . . less-than-quality . . . stuff, but that first album I always thought was excellent. So much power in those songs.

    Thriller, Footloose, Sports, Born in the USA, and Purple Rain.

    Okay, not bad IMHO.
